How can I set up my browser to better work with BS and Blackboard?
Most browsers will work with Blackboard with no modifications, but if problems arise the information below will often resolves the issue.
Often problems arise from pop up blockers and some browser settings that will give you a difficult time taking any online course. These can be avoided by adding http://bluefieldstate.blackboard.com/ to the exception list in your browsers settings, usually located in the Firefox browser. Clicking the link on the window marked Tools, then by choosing Options, then Content for FireFox. Internet explorer users look at the top of the window for the link marked Tools, then Internet Options, then Privacy, then Settings.
You can download Firefox for free.
